A reflection on the Gospel for the Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Human beings need to relate to one another. We cannot stand being isolated. That is why sometimes looks can kill. Silence can kill too. There are ways of ignoring people that are almost equivalent to taking the person for dead. Sometimes, when people are terribly angry, they might even say things like, “That person is dead to me.” That is, we can kill a person by hatred or indifference. In today’s story Jesus does not ignore Jairus or the woman who suffers, because God does not want death for anyone. It would have been to easy for Jesus: There were many people, and he could have pretended that he did not see Jairus or the woman. It certainly would have been much more comfortable. And yet Jesus listens to their faith even though his friends advise him to go on his way and not to listen to those who are bothering him. God’s generosity is not shown only in giving material things, but mainly in giving life. It is such an abundant life that Christ gives himself totally. Christ became poor that we might be rich, not in money or material things but in life. That is the greatest generosity because it is the generosity of those who do not hold on to their own lives or comforts while ignoring the needs of others.


Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del Decimotercer domingo del tiempo ordinario

Los seres humanos necesitamos relacionarnos. No podemos soportar el aislamiento. Por eso hay miradas que matan y silencio que matan también. Hay maneras de ignorar a la gente que casi equivalen a tener a la gente por muerta. Incluso cuando alguien está terriblemente enojado con otra persona puede llegar a decir: “Para mí esa persona está muerta”. Es decir, podemos dar por muerta a una persona por odio o por indiferencia. En la historia de hoy, Jesús no ignora a Jairo ni a la mujer que sufre, porque Dios no quiere la muerte de nadie. Hubiera sido muy fácil: había muchísima gente podría haber disimulado y hecho como si no los viera ni los sintiera. Hubiera sido mucho más cómodo, ciertamente. Pero Jesús escucha y atiende a la fe de esas personas, a pesar de que le aconsejan que siga su camino y no escuche, que no atienda a los que le importunan y le molestan. La generosidad de Dios no está solamente en dar cosas, sino principalmente en dar vida. Vida tan abundante que Cristo se da a si mismo, enteramente. Se hizo pobre para que pudiéramos ser ricos. No ricos de dinero ni de cosas, sino ricos en vida. Esa es la mayor generosidad, porque es la generosidad de quien no se aferra a su propia comodidad ignorando las necesidades vitales de otros.

We have started to meet with our fund-raising or Festival Committee to plan our annual Festival here at St. Bruno’s Parish. We hope to continue to work together as a parish community to celebrate our unity and our uniqueness as a multicultural community, to have some clean fun together and at the same time support our parish and raise some funds. Our goal for this year’s Festival is to get funds especially for continuing to work in our Church and build much needed handicap ramps. Our Festival will be held on Saturday, September 23rd and Sunday, September 24th. As usual, we hope to have our grand Raffle of $1,000.00, our Popularity contest, lots of dances, our multicultural food, multicultural talent and entertainment and lots of new games and surprises galore for children and adults. We ask for whatever help you can give us to make this annual Parish fund raiser a success. We need your valued participation and support in whatever, for example in donating your talents, your time and your money for our parish. Thank you very much.

Each ticket is $1.00 or 12 tickets for $10.00.
